Kavaklidere Sultaniye (semi-sweet)

The super pale lemony yellow color and floral and hay notes in the nose were promising. Sultaniyes are known for a flavor profile that includes: asparagus, pear, pineapple, mango, floral, lemon, golden and green apples, and hay. The floral was really in my face but I was also clearly tasting the pineapple, hay, and green apple. And while this is a semi-sweet; it really is just semi. There's nothing desserty or overwhelmingly saccharine about it at all. It also went really well with the walnut/grape/dried cranberry chicken salad.
